Hello Susie, Thank you very much! Message for blog in Russian: Большое спасибо за интересную и насыщенную программу обучения! Море позитивных воспоминаний о времени, проведённом на борту яхты Dogstar! Гибралтар – прекрасное место для паруса, шкипер Оливер – отличный парень. Если будете себя хорошо вести и найдёте где-нибудь свежего осьминога – попросите его приготовить, не пожалеете! Kind Regards, Alexander

Elina, Sergy and Vera sailed aboard our Beneteau 40 visiting many of our Marina's to the north of Barcelona in The Bay Of Rosas. Elina completed her RYA Day Skipper Practical, Vera RYA Competent Crew and Sergy came along to refresh his sailing skills. Our RYA Instructor Charlie reports having a first class week with great students. Here are their comments:

Отличное плавание у берегов Коста Бравы на этой неделе. Трое моих друзей из России смогли насладиться жарким солнцем, свежим ветром и всеми прелестями пяти местных гаваней и портов. Вера успешно завершила курс Competent Crew, вместе с этим приготовив кучу вкусной еды на борту. Елена показала на собственном примере, что целеустремленность и труд приносят результаты, завершив с отличием курс Day Skipper. Сергей обновил свои навыки хождения под парусом в рамках программы Coastal Skipper. Вместе мы отлично провели время, как на море так и на берегу, и студенты уже с нетерпением ждут следующего путешествия.

Hello Susie, We enjoyed our Day Skipper course. We received good practice and skills we were expected. Thank you very much. Best regards, Elena Mukhametzyanova. Sailed with our RYA Cruising Instructor and RYA Shorebased Theory Instructor Charlie on board our Beneteau 40. Barcelona Base.

Hi Susie, Just a quick line to say what a great week I've had, I couldn't have had a better instructor. Look forward to sailing with you guys again soon. Yours Sincerely Andrew. Sailed with our RYA Yachtmaster Instructor Oliver on our Beneteau 473 from Gibraltar Base in Queensway Quay.

Great thanks Suzie, and please pass on my thanks to Charlie as well. I very much enjoyed the course, the instruction was excellent and the yachts far surpassed the quality and size I was expecting. Was all in all a great experience. I hope you have a great summer. All the best, Tim.

Hi all Many thanks for your e-mail. We didn't have any problems processing our ICC forms and our certificates have been processed and are hopefully in the post by now. The RYA office staff were extremely efficient as was Susie who meticulously took us through the course expertly putting us at our ease and managing to teach us a lot of things that we hadn't thought of before. We really enjoyed her tuition and it has given us a lot more confidence on the boat. We even managed to anchor off without dragging once so that was an achievement in itself as we had every intention in investing in a new anchor a few weeks ago. Thanks once again and hope to see you out on the water soon. Regards Kathryn & Gordon ICC Training and Assessments from £295 - Email us here or call +34 972 662 494

Hi BOS We had a fabulous time, it really was a great week and we both learnt so much. We think Susie is an excellent tutor she is very patient and calm but firm when needed and clearly extremely experienced. We will certainly recommend your school to others and if you need any reference at any time please get in touch we would be more than happy to share our experience with others thinking about training with you. It was great to meet you both and your beautiful daughter Harriet, we hope we will see you again on another course next year if we can. We hope you have a wonderful summer. We may even see you at sea some time! Best regards Ben and Janette
